I Love Thunderstorms

Driving to Duckon, even as tired as I was, I enjoyed driving to the east of the thunderstorms, though I was sad that I couldn't watch the lightning strikes in the distance, since my eyes belonged on the road.

It wasn't until I turned west, toward the thunderstorms, that I grew less pleased with the situation--I don't like driving in any amount of rain at night, and driving while water is pouring from the sky enough to discourage Chicago drivers from staying on the highway is ... well, more than enough to prevent me from enjoying the weather.

Though my hair looked good, Friday evening at the con, once the storm-water dried in it. A number or people told me so!

And now, as I type this, on the evening of Solstice, I'm in the middle of a thunderstorm, with possible tornadoes moving into the Milwaukee area. The weather has usurped CSI, the kitten is diving for cover just like she did when the fighter-jets were playing overhead, and I've taken the precaution of unplugging the laptop from the wall. I'm under a "tornadic signature" right now, though the sky doesn't look odd-colored (when the lightning lights it enough to see color), and the thunderstorm just feels exuberant to me, not dangerous.

Right now, the clean, humid air and the storm energy are delightful, helping to refill my energy reserves. It's the least tired I've felt all day. And I expect to sleep well, with a nice rain expected to follow for quite a while.

And now the thunder is getting more muted and the kitten is playing with my shoe-laces; the worst of the storm must be getting out over Lake Michigan.

Happy Solstice, everyone!

Blessed Solstice to you! We had our shortest day yesterday and our longest night the previous evening. Winter has been here for a little while for sure, lots of rain which is good for the garden but I'm ready for some crisp clear days now!
